Based on your feedback and the results of your Comprehensive Exam and Aesthetic Diagnosis, the doctor will recommend which dental restoration options are the best long-term solution for your smile.
Cosmetic Bonding is one of the less invasive ways to enhance your smile. Bonding is a specialized tooth-colored composite material that can improve the color, shape and overall appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic Bonding can be applied to one tooth or many teeth to create a more dramatic change. It can also be used to repair chips, cracks, or open spaces between teeth.
Gingival Recontouring, also known as Crown Lengthening, is a surgical procedure to address an uneven gum line, or “gummy smile.” An uneven gum line can create the appearance of short or disproportionate teeth. This one-day procedure to surgically re-contour the gum tissue can significantly change the appearance of your smile. Please visit our Gum Recontouring page for more details and see dramatic before and after photos on our Smile Stories page.
Porcelain Veneers are one of the longer lasting and less invasive ways to create a stunning smile transformation. A veneer is an ultra-thin, artistically designed restoration which is made of porcelain. Veneers cover the facial (outside) surface of the teeth and are used to restore discolored, misshapen, damaged or misaligned teeth. Porcelain veneers blend beautifully with the gum line and give the appearance and functionality of natural teeth.
Professional Teeth Whitening is one of the easiest and most common aesthetic dental services available to help you reclaim a brighter and more youthful smile. Teeth bleaching is both safe and effective. If you are interested in whitening, we will create custom-fitted bleaching trays, along with professional whitening solutions to use at home. You will then be given personalized at-home instructions and we will monitor your progression until you achieve your desired results.
A Dental Crown is a restoration that is placed over an existing tooth while retaining the look, feel and functionality of a natural tooth. This restoration serves to restore one tooth or several teeth. Your Dentist may recommend a dental crown if the tooth is decayed, broken, discolored, or root canal-treated. Dental crowns may also be used to replace missing teeth after placement of a dental implant.
A Dental Bridge is made by combining a false tooth/teeth between two crowns, which cover the teeth on either side of a gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or dental implants, much like crowns.
